More Pets in the White House

Caroline Kennedy's pony, Macaroni, was a present from Lyndon Johnson. Macaroni roamed freely around the White House grounds and received thousands of fan letters from the American public. Caroline also had a famous dog named Pushinka, who was given to her by the head of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev.

Rex, a King Charles Spaniel, came to live with the Reagans when he was a year old. Rex often pulled too hard on his leash and would drag the Reagans away from reporters and photographers before anyone could ask the President any questions!

President Bush's dog Millie is the only First Pet to write a book. Millie had puppies while President Bush was in office, and her puppies all went to good homes. Ranger, one of Millie's puppies, is pictured here with President Bush.
